Certified EHR Technology Documentation: all certified modules or EHRs that are available at a practice(s) at the start of the EHR reporting period must be added to the cart on the Office of the National Coordinator Certified Health IT Product List (CHPL) website to generate an accurate CMS EHR Certification ID. Eligible Professionals (EPs) must upload a screenshot of the CHPL webpage with the CMS EHR Certification ID at the time of attestation.
Proof of Adopt, Implement, Upgrade (AIU) of certified EHR technology: Eligible Professionals must upload a document(s) that shows proof that certified EHR technology has been adopted, implemented, or upgraded. All documents must be fully executed, i.e., signed and dated by both the provider (or provider organization) and vendor and clearly reflect obligation and/or payment for an EHR.
